For the Fish

For the Sauce, optional

  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp shallot, minced
  • 4 tbsp capers, drained
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper


  • Preheat your Z Grills pellet smoker to medium heat, about 350°F, using your favorite Z Grills wood pellets. Just before cooking the haddock, grease the grill grates by rubbing a small paper towel soaked in olive oil where the fish will touch the grill.
  • Prepare the haddock by patting it dry with paper towels. Then, oil the fish lightly with some olive oil. You can use a basting brush, a paper towel, or your hands to apply the oil.
  • Season the haddock filets with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.
  • Place 2-3 slices of lemon for each filet on the grill. Then, place the haddock filets on top of the lemons. Leave space between each filet.
  • Close the grill lid and cook for about 8 minutes. When the internal temperature of the haddock reaches 145°F, remove it from your pellet smoker.
  • To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. You can do this while your haddock cooks, before or after. Once the sauce is done, top the fish with the sauce immediately.
  • Serve your haddock with brown rice and veggies for a complete meal.
